Comparison of melted materials from TeH with those from the Trinity atomic bomb test. (a), (b) SEM images compare a melted, decorated zircon embedded in mudbrick meltglass from the palace with similar material from Trinity. (c), (d) Photomicrographs compare a melted potsherd from the palace with similar-looking material from Trinity. (e), (f) The melted zircons in panels ‘a’ and ‘b’ were found in highly vesicular glass like these from the palace and the Trinity site, respectively. (g), (h) SEM images of a spherule fused onto mudbrick meltglass from the palace and a spherule embedded into trinitite from the Trinity atomic test.
